Short-term health insurance plans are limited in duration and you will stop receiving benefits when the plan expires. Plan duration and whether you can renew or buy a new plan after plan expiration depends on the plan you choose and the laws in your state. After a short-term plan expires (in some cases, in only 3 months), you must reapply to receive further benefits.
If you are accepted for an additional term under a short-term health insurance plan, the plan’s deductible and other amounts reset so that amounts paid (or the satisfaction of conditions) under the initial plan is ignored. Similarly, whether you have pre-existing conditions will generally be determined anew as of your approval under the new application.
Insurance companies and state laws limit the number of times a short-term insurance policy may be renewed and may restrict your ability to apply for more than one consecutive short-term health insurance plan. Please review the plan details and policy terms for the maximum coverage period allowed by the plan you select.

SHORT TERM MEDICAL (STM) AND HEALTH CARE REFORM
SHORT-TERM, LIMITED-DURATION PLANS ARE NOT SUBJECT TO CERTAIN PROVISIONS OF FEDERAL HEALTH CARE REFORM, INCLUDING THE PROVISIONS RELATED TO ESSENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITS, LIFETIME LIMITS, PREVENTIVE CARE, GUARANTEED RENEWABILITY, AND PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS. THE PRE-EXISTING CONDITION EXCLUSION FOR SHORT TERM MEDICAL PLANS WILL APPLY FOR ALL INSUREDS, INCLUDING THOSE UNDER THE AGE OF 19. EXAMPLES OF THE CLAIMS STM PLANS DO NOT COVER ARE FOR MOST PREVENTIVE CARE, MATERNITY, MENTAL HEALTH AND TREATMENT RELATED TO MEDICAL CONDITIONS THEY HAD PRIOR TO THE PLAN’S EFFECTIVE DATE. BECAUSE THESE PLANS ARE NOT GUARANTEED RENEWABLE, THE APPLICANT MAY NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR ANOTHER SHORT-TERM PLAN AFTER THE PLAN’S TERMINATION DATE; AND THE PRE-EXISTING CONDITION EXCLUSION WILL APPLY TO ANY CONDITIONS THAT AROSE DURING ANY PRIOR SHORT-TERM PLANS. KNOW YOUR PLAN.
SHORT TERM MEDICAL AND SUPPLEMENTAL ACCIDENT AND CRITICAL-ILLNESS PLANS OFFER AFFORDABLE COVERAGE, BUT MAY HAVE ELIGIBILITY QUESTIONS (SO YOU CAN BE DECLINED) AND DO NOT PROVIDE MINIMUM ESSENTIAL COVERAGE. THIS MEANS THE INSURED MAY HAVE TO PAY A TAX PENALTY, DEPENDING ON THEIR INCOME LEVEL AND THE COST OF PLANS AVAILABLE
